A Season of Change 



This year has brought many changes and I am grateful to be back in my studio painting again. 

I have completed many new paintings and look forward to having people up to view them and stay for a visit.

Artists naturally social distance so it is a pleasure when we can invite friends and family in to see what we have been up to.

If you are interested in a private showing or small group, please email or call to set up a time that is convenient. We adhere to the social distancing guidelines and provide masks.

I look forward to seeing you !

Art as an Oasis

a series of occasional postings from the art of Carrie Kleinberger
providing a temporary respite from both mundane and monumental cares
words of wisdom from a diversity of others
~ on children ~
 In every child who is born,

under no matter what circumstances, and no matter what parents, the potentiality of the human race is born again.
― James Agee


When I approach a child,

he inspires in me two sentiments;
tenderness for what he is, and respect for what he may become.

L'abbé Étienne Blanchard, "Recueil d'idées”
(translated from the French)
[often misattributed to Louis Pasteur]

"You don't treat me like a child." 

He smiled. "Of course I do, but you seem to have this ridiculous notion that being treated like a child means to be treated with less respect than an adult."

– Derek Landy, The Faceless Ones

contemporary author of children's books


There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these she said is roots, the other, wings.

"Where Main Street Meets the River"

"wise woman")

artist’s statement

 This posting is the third of three

charcoals showing individual triplets,
at the age of four, at moments

of preternatural solemnity.
This charcoal shows the other of the two

boys of the triplets,
 but by happenstance shows only the left

side of his face.
The full portrait is of a cousin. 
Both children appear solemn;
the cousin’s gaze is less guarded.
